Unformatted text preview: Summary The set of models for agent systems operate at two levels of abstraction. First one is that a system is modeled as an inherit hierarchy of agent classes. Second one is that allowing the structure to determine the behaviour such as belief, goal and plan. The author contrasts the object oriented modeling technique and agent oriented modeling technique for example, oom has three types of models (Object Model, Dynamic Model, Functional Model)where as aom has two types of models (external view, Agent Model, Interaction Model; internal view, Belief Model, Goal Model Plan Model). The authors explain internal view models in AOM. Belief model contains belief sets and one or more belief states. The paper also explains what a belief set, states are in detail. While explaining the Goal Model, the paper takes the attentions to belief-goal compatibility. The paper also discusses Plan Model and compares it with Object Oriented approaches such as plan graphs have semantics, unlike OO dynamic models. The agent classes can have attributes but not functions. Also multiple inheritance is dynamic models....
